Americans sent a heart warming message to immigrants this Valentine’s Day. Two activist organizations, Welcome.us and Define American, called on people to show solidarity with immigrants by using #ToImmigrantsWithLove for the holiday.
NBC news reported this statement from the leading organization.
“This campaign comes at a crucial time not only for millions of immigrants who call America home, but for the millions more whose lives are connected to ours,” Jose Antonio Vargas, an immigration rights activist and founder of Define American, said in a statement. “We are an immigrant nation and we love our immigrants. Let’s show it.”
The tweets then poured in from activists, celebrities, and concerned citizens alike.
